It's amazing how the layers of this eclair torte soften overnight into a cake-like texture. Just before serving dessert, I like to dust the top with cocoa. —Agnes Ward, Stratford, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

In a large heavy saucepan, combine the first five ingredients. Gradually whisk in evaporated milk and milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer or until thickened.
Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg substitute; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of filling; cover and refrigerate until cooled.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine whipped topping and 1 tablespoon cocoa; set aside. Arrange half of the crackers in a 9-in. square pan coated with cooking spray.
